New Jersey Builders Association Honors Annual Industry Award Recipients

The New Jersey Builders Association (NJBA) recently honored its annual Industry Awards recipients at Forsgate Country Club, in Monroe Township, NJ. The Industry Awards honor members of NJBA who have made outstanding contributions to the housing and/or the building industry in New Jersey over the prior year.

NJBA President Dwight Wesley Pittenger, Esq. stated, “The Industry Award winners honored yesterday have all demonstrated an outstanding commitment to NJBA and the building industry in NJ. Their dedication and service to the association is invaluable and I offer my sincerest congratulations to everyone who was honored yesterday afternoon.”

NJBA CEO Carol Ann Short, Esq. added, “I congratulate all of our award winners who have given so much to the association over the past year. Without the support of dedicated members like those we honored yesterday, our association would not be able to realize the level of success we enjoy in support of the NJ building industry.”
